Spring Valley, New York—The family of a security guard who was fatally stabbed on the job at a Spring Valley library is demanding answers. Just months before Blanchard Glaudin, 25, was charged with stabbing Sandra Wilson at the Finklestein Library, a judge had allowed his release without bail after an alleged attempted rape in November.(Snip) "My sister was brutally murdered, brutally murdered, doing her job. How do we move forward from this?" Hayward said. Glaudin is accused of stabbing Wilson, 52, with a kitchen knife on Tuesday after she asked him to turn down his music. Library patrons intervened in the attack

Comments:

The DA says the smiling killer should probably have not been out of jail to begin with, but a judge set him free after a felony arrest for attempted rape. Supposedly an investigation is underway, resulting perhaps in a sternly worded letter in the judge's circular file.

First, I find no indication that this middle aged woman 'security guard' was armed. THAT is a sad thing, basically tossing someone to the almost literal wolves with no ability to defend herself effectively. The "justice system" in many places has entirely lost track of the point of the whole exercise. The POINT is to keep average citizens safe from the violent few who would harm us. This is especially important in those worthless states which prevent honest citizens from being armed to defend themselves. So, they let violent felons loose on the general public, to harm more of us. Apparently they think that the point is to minimize any inconvenience to violent criminals. Avoid those states which won't let you defend yourself in public.

DVC, I am a middle-aged woman who survived working for 2 years in a men's prison in Georgia. No one is allowed to carry anything more lethal than a radio into the cell blocks. You have to be in shape, have the proper no b.s. attitude and most importantly the ability to recognize a real threat when you see it. This poor lady did not have that ability.

A functioning society would have little need for armed guards in places like public libraries, but in Transformed America, the left demands that the homeless and the criminally insane have every right to hang out wherever they please. This one hails perhaps from Haiti, which no doubt benefits from his being here, enriching our Diversity, instead of there, killing people.

News York's got real issues with its leadership and its citizens better start changing things before it's too late. It's already too late for a growing number of victims.

If the defendant, Mr. Glaudin is mentally ill, he was probably released because: 1. He is mentally ill and the jail did not know how to handle him and had no facilities available to deal with his diagnosis. 2. If he was released and had been put into a "facility" until his court date, he probably checked himself out as he could not be held against his will due to his mental illness (thanks to "advocates" for the mentally ill who don't take severity of illness into account). Many people with mental illness have learned to work the system to their advantage and escape accountability for their actions due to their "illness".

She was a security guard at a library, not a prison! Her main job was to keep people from stealing books. I can't believe the victim-blaming I often see in connection with horrible and senseless crimes like this one.

bail exists for two reasons, beyond the fact that it is a constitutional right. first, it exists to make sure the alleged criminal shows up for court. second, it exists to keep people who are likely to continue to commit terrible crimes, so bail is denied. we don't know the circumstances of the alleged rape charge. Was it husband/wife? boyfriend/girlfriend?

Libraries in California are homeless hangouts. They build fancy ones and the homeless move in and ruin them for everyone. Mental illness, substance abuse and criminal activity—all of which can be handled, but aren’t. Stay out of libraries...I feel great sadness for this lady and her family. Oh, and stop voting for Dems! Doh!

"..a judge had allowed his release.." the "judge" is liable for this murder and must spend the rest of his/her life in prison.. maybe that would discourage these "judges" from allowing killers to kill people..

Why did the Judge release this murderer without bail? Because the 100% demonrat legislature and Cuomo passed a law saying murder was a non-violent crime.

'Reexamining our history': Dems want to

House Democrats said Monday they will try to toss the bust of former Chief Justice Roger Taney from the collection in the U.S. Capitol, saying the Maryland jurist’s role in writing the decision in the 1857 Dred Scott ruling makes him unfit for that honor. The bust sits in the old Supreme Court chambers, now preserved for history, on the ground floor of the Capitol. House Majority Leader Steny H. Hoyer, Maryland Democrat, said he wants to replace it with one of the late Justice Thurgood Marshall, the first black man to serve on the Supreme Court. “We’re entering a new era where we are reexamining

Richmond, Va.—Some of Virginia’s scores of Confederate monuments could soon be removed under legislation state lawmakers approved Sunday. The Democratic-led House and Senate passed measures that would undo an existing state law that protects the monuments and instead let local governments decide their fate. The bill’s passage marks the latest turn in Virginia’s long-running debate over how its history should be told in public spaces.(Snip) Virginia, a state that prides itself on its pivotal role in America’s early history, is home to more than 220 public memorials to the Confederacy, according to state officials.

Ruth Bader Ginsburg dismantled a controversial Louisiana abortion bill during an hour of arguments at the US Supreme Court this week, systematically striking down components of the law she previously opposed during a preliminary vote. The 86-year-old Supreme Court justice, who recently returned to the nation’s highest court after announcing she was cancer-free in January, seemed to aggressively push back against demands from lawyers representing the Trump administration and state of Louisiana to approve the legislation during Wednesday’s arguments. Louisiana’s Act 620 would require abortion providers to have admitting privileges at a hospital within 30 miles of its facilities, in the event

ICE announced Friday that it had defied a California sanctuary law and arrested a repeat-felon illegal immigrant outside of San Francisco’s Hall of Justice this week, prompting angry denunciations from local officials. The arrest is the latest escalation between the Trump administration and California over immigration enforcement, with the feds pushing back hard on the state’s sanctuary policies through lawsuits, subpoenas, and now flouting the state’s own laws. ICE said it had tried eight times to get local authorities to turn over the man, who was not identified by name, but each time those “detainer” requests were rebuffed. So they tracked him down

Under the new rules, posted online Friday and slated to be published in the Federal Register next week, Attorney General William P.

Voters from predominantly black and Latino neighbourhoods were forced to wait for hours to cast their ballot in Texas on Super Tuesday after long lines were reported at some polling stations. Election officials in the Houston area were forced to send in additional voting machines as thousands of people reportedly waited for up to five hours to vote at one station. The long waits came after the closure of hundreds of polling stations across Texas by the Republican-led state government since 2012. MSNBC anchor Rachel Maddow suggested voting difficulties had been caused in part by the “systematic” closing of stations in areas with high turnout for minority

The FBI missed opportunities to stop domestic terrorists from killing Americans because field offices failed to further investigate individuals who had been labeled homegrown violent extremists, the Justice Department watchdog said in a scathing report released Wednesday. At least six terrorists who later carried out attacks killing a total of 70 people were on the FBI’s radar prior to the attacks. However, the agents quickly closed the cases, concluding the suspects were not threats to national security, according to the Justice Department inspector general. Among the more high-profile individuals the FBI failed to recognize as a potential source of terrorism were Omar Mateen, who killed 49
